It’s been almost a week since the horror of mass murder happened in the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown CT. The school, a crime scene, will be closed for the remainder of the year. The school district is preparing to reopen an older, empty school building to educate the students of Sandy Hook for the remainder of the year. The building is yet stark and undecorated, and here is where we can help. If you have children or grandchildren in school, if you know a teacher or school staff, if you home school, if you are able to pass this along in any way to someone who might be able to have school children participate, please do so. The request from the forwarded email follows:
We are asking your students to make and decorate a snowflake. We will hang them in the hallways at the stark, new building where the Sandy Hook students will be returning. PLEASE NO WORDS! We want just a cheerful, happy (glitter and sparkle) environment for the students entering the new building.
Please pass on to any teachers you think may want to participate.
When you send your snowflakes, please include a note to tell us where they are from (your school, class, town, etc) to display along with your snowflakes.
